To date, scientists have confirmed the existence of more than 900 exoplanets circulating outside our solar system. To determine if any of these far-off worlds are habitable requires knowing an exoplanet’s mass — which can help tell scientists whether the planet is made of gas or rock and other life-supporting materials.
If dark matter exists, it's not hiding out in our neighbourhood, baffled scientists have revealed.
CERN yesterday ramped the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) up to record levels, ahcieving a collision energy of 8 TeV.
Well, no definite proof - but scientists at CERN say they've seen 'tantalising hints' of the Higgs boson, and that they've narrowed the range of mass it could have - if it exists.
Life on earth is on the verge of a mass extinction comparable to that which wiped out the dinosaurs, scientists at UC Berkeley have warned.
Stephen Hawking believes humans must colonize additional planets or face mass extinction.
A JPL research scientist has hypothesized that the recent magnitude 8.8 earthquake in Chile shortened the length of each Earth day by approximately 1.26 microseconds, or one millionth of a second.
